  1. So sad to hear about the neighbors. I always want people to have a good time, but the Fort is so expensive that when their "good time" dampers (or ruins) my good time... that's when it gets really tough. Also sad to hear about the tetherball. Not good. Oh... and the dogs? I don't know why it's so tough, for the Fort to enforce the rules. Sounds like getting your camper was actually a lot of work! Not sure whey that surprises me actually, finding a good one is a lot of work. Glad you've got it now and you can enjoy it
  2. Glad it went smoothly and you found what you were looking for
  3. Looking forward to this! Somehow I missed that you were up in our area to pick up your camper...
  4. Love that you're doing this, Ray ❤️ We had breakfast at the Beach Club Resort. It was just take-out from the quick service, but the patio there is so pretty. Afterwards, you can walk along the beach area, grab a swing and talk. It's such a pretty place, that even a simple Mickey waffle is extra special ❤️
  5. This pic was posted on a FB page. Mercy... this is SO sad. The trees are all gone (this is where the barn was) and now you can see the Lodge! Notice the sweet deer, on the left side of the picture, on the small mound of dirt. This hurts my heart....
  6. Thank you, good thoughts. I don’t know that finding something here would be the best fit, simply because we’ll probably camp before and after, so the 3 night need (for the cruise) would end up being much longer if we left him here. Having said that, I have had a couple of Fiends reach out to me and offer up solutions for taking care of Simon there in FL ❤️
  7. The Fiesta has offered to put us in a lot, farther out, for the $40..... but after talking to so many, the North VIP sounds like one to take. However, we did a day at the MK this past trip and hate to say it: we missed the parks. So, I think we'll use the money we would have used to go to the balloon fiesta, to save for tickets (probably not APs, but regular tickets). Honestly, this would have been more for Tom and I; I think the kids would have liked it, for a couple of hours. Plus when I asked them if they'd rather do the fiesta or a couple days at the parks... the Mouse won. LOL We are doing another cross-country trip next summer so, that will be huge adventure. On the list for this trip: Glacier, the Oregon coast, Crater Lake, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore (plus lots in between, including fantastic family time) ❤️
  8. Thank you. I know. It's still a good 13-16 months off, so I'm trying not to think about it. I may have to start drinking... which I know will make some Fiends happy
  9. I had thought of that, but I don't know that we know of anyone (that would want to come live in our home... they might allow him to stay with them). Plus, the cruise will only be 3 nights and we'll (probably) camp there and back. Truth of it all is, this darn dog that drives me up the wall, from the person who will tell you that she is NOT a dog person... it makes me sad to think that he might be sad. Darn dog.
  10. The only thing I can figure... is GA doesn't allow it, because you're not allowed to pull a camper in the toll lanes. What stinks, is we bought the silly thing, to (primarily) use while we're in FL. Put $50 on it and now I keep getting a bill from FL. Guess we'll just need to buy a Sunpass (or the 18 state transponder). Probably the easiest.
  11. Thank you. I too hope and pray that the cruise goes wonderfully. This is something special for my parents, or we wouldn't be doing it... LOL. I know Tom and the kids will love it at least I appreciate the suggestion, but I'm not sure how it would work for two reasons: 1. we don't live near Disney, so he could not get used to the smells at that kennel or with those people and 2. even if he didn't like it, we're kind-of stuck because he has to be watched somewhere. Ugh. Hopefully we figure it out between now and then.
  12. Thank you. Hopefully that's the same for us, when we go (gulp).
  13. Good to know! Is there a charge for leaving your rig there? Thank you!
  14. So... as I've mentioned, it looks like I'm going to have to get on a (DCL) cruise boat, which will be a huge thing for me (insert panic attack here). As anxious as I am about getting on the ship, our little hot-mess of a dog is ultra-neurotic, so leaving him will be HUGE deal. The thing is, he hates...hates being left. He's such a love and is super cute (his two saving graces... LOL), but we have to drug him, to leave him. Not quite sure what we're going to do with the little guy, but considering the kennel down the street from the Fort as I think we'll do a couple of days at the Fort with our trip. Any feedback on the kennel?? I have ZERO experiences with dog kennels, so I know... nothing.
  15. See... I didn't think they would. Mom and dad want to do a family DCL trip next year, with a few days before/after at the Fort. I need to find out if they'll let us keep our rig there.
  16. Yes!! Actually... that one frustrated me because with our "smaller" (still 34' but smaller than the 40' we had ), we could fit into several of the sites in the 1500 loop and would GLADLY do so, to save money. Ugh... oh well.
  17. On a completely different note... but close to the back gate... I still don't get all the RVs that site in the overflow lot: for DAYS. Heck, we saw one RV (early morning and then very late at night) parked with all the other cars (have no idea where all these people were) on the grass once you've entered the Fort and started towards the loop (by the TOAD drop off); that RV had a slide open and appeared to be "camping" there for the night.
  18. Pretty sure as we've been charged when going through tolls without the camper. I imagine so... but the transponder is on the front windshield, so I figured that's where it grabbed it from. I keep telling Tom to cover up the RV tag when we get close to the turnpike, either that or write a big note that says: PEACH PASS
  19. On a different note...the 500 loop this year had a Coco theme with a live Mariachi band. It was fantastic!!
